Wisconsin Fast Plants, rapid-cycling brassicas, are part of a large family of plants called crucifers (Latin = Cruciferae). This resource tells the story of Crucifers, which are easilydistinguished by the characteristic shape of their flowersĺŃfour petals in the shape of a cross or crucifix. A section, or genus, of the crucifer family is the genus Brassica.Brassicas have great economic and commercial value, and play a major role in feeding the world population. They range from nutritious vegetables, mustards and oil producing crops, to animal fodders and weeds.

This experiment takes advantage of the ease of growth and short life cycle (seed to seed in 35 days) in Fast Plants--an organism suitable for many kinds of home and classroom scientific investigations.Fast Plants are particularly interesting because, like humans, they exhibit considerable variation in many observable characteristics. Fast Plantsхи are useful for experiments investigating the effects of environment (light, nutrition, etc.) on variation in growth, development and reproduction.

Botany & Art and Their Roles in Conservation
Read the Fine Print

0.0 stars

The lessons in this issue of Smithsonian in Your Classroom introduce the work of botanists and botanical illustrators, specifically their race to make records of endangered plant species around the world. “Very little of the world’s flora has been fully studied,” says one Smithsonian botanist, “and time is running out.” In the first lesson, students gets to know six endangered plants. They examine illustrations, photographs, and dried specimens of the plants as they consider this question: If a scientist can take a picture of a plant, are there advantages in having an illustration? They go on to consider some of the big questions that botanists themselves must ask: Which of these species are most in need of conservation efforts? Are any of these plants more worth saving than others?In the second lesson, the students try their own hands at botanical illustration, following the methods of a Smithsonian staff illustrator. All that is required for the lesson are pencils, markers, tracing paper, and access to a photocopier.

The Botany of Desire

In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan explores risks inherent in one of the most widespread practices in modern agriculture. It's called monoculture, and it refers to cultivation of single or very similar varieties of a food crop on large acreages. In many cases, the variety is one that dominates the marketplace, like the Russet Burbank potato, whose shape makes it a favorite for cutting French fries, or one of the few apple varieties commonly seen in supermarkets. Monoculture may offer economic advantages, but Pollan argues that it brings serious environmental risks.

Traits include high expression of purple anthocyanin, Pan(8), throughout plant; particularly noticeable on the hypocotyl, stem, hydathodes and sepals. Anthocyanin expression is strongly enhanced by environmental factors, e.g. high light and nutrient stress. Intermediate and variable expression of hair on leaves and stems, Hir(3-6). Purple anthocyaninand hairiness exhibit quantitative inheritance.

CELL EXPANSION
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Introduction: Plants are capable of rapidly adapting to changes in their environment. Plants can grow to replace damaged parts, bend in the direction of light cues, or elongate rapidly under good conditions. Plant hormones often play a role in plant development by affecting patterns of growth. Gibberellins, in particular, can elicit changes in growth, elongation, and flowering.
The growth of a plant cell is primarily driven by the uptake of water into the cytoplasm and vacuole of the plant cell. The vacuole expands rapidly, pressing against the cell wall. In order for the cell to enlarge, the cell wall must yield to the stress produced by cell turgor. Therefore, we would suspect that plant hormones might affect properties of the cell in order to affect plant growth.

Question: How do osmotic potential and properties of the cell wall contribute to cell enlargement? How do plant hormones affect rates of cell enlargement?

COORDINATING PHOTOSYNTHETIC ACTIVITY
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Introduction: The ability of organisms to measure time is evidence that they are well adapted to the 24-hour day/night cycle of our planet. Circadian rhythms are the daily repeating patterns of many organisms, such as the closing of flowers at night or opening of stomata during the day. An interesting property of circadian rhythms is that many are endogenous, arising from an internal biological clock. For example, in 1729, a French scientist discovered that circadian movements were not dependent on the daily cycling of light and dark, even though they were synchronized with it.

Photosynthesis is an important circadian rhythm in plants. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert carbon dioxide and water to sugar and oxygen:

6CO2 + 6H2O + light energy --> C6H12O6 + 6O2

Tiny openings in the leaves, called stomata, open and close to regulate the amount of CO2 taken in, and the amount of water and O2 exiting. The two pathways of photosynthesis, photophosphorylation and the Calvin-Benson Cycle, proceed within the chloroplast. The products of photophosphorylation, ATP and NADPH + H+, are converted to sugars in the Calvin-Benson Cycle. Because photophosphorylation requires light energy to proceed, both pathways of photosynthesis stop in the dark. It is therefore beneficial for plants to coordinate their photosynthetic activity and stomata activity with daily changes in light availability. The internal clock coordinating photosynthesis produces a circadian rhythm.

Question: How can we use trigonometry to quantify circadian rhythms of photosynthesis? What properties of the environment or plant are responsible for the photosynthetic rhythm? How do manipulations of light and carbon dioxide affect photosynthetic rhythms?
